The new electronic database (named above) at the NY Public Library was
mentioned in a posting. Can this be accessed anywhere besides at the
library itself? Is the scanning the same as that for other ProQuest
databases, wherein one can scan for any word (or name)?
Thanks.

It can be accessed within NYPL's four research centers (Scwharzman Building,
SIBL, Schomburg, and Library for the Performing Arts).

And yes, the scans are full-text (OCR) scans, so you can search by keyword, but
with any OCR scan, you also have to assume it misses some.
